A co-op is a cooperative effort led by parents, and its success or failure rests squarely on all of our shoulders. There are many ways you can help:
- Teach or co-teach a class
- Assist in a class
- Help monitor hallways
We meet on scheduled Mondays, 10am-12pm. After classes are over, everyone is invited to meet at Collins Park for lunch and to let the kids play. Parents also enjoy having time to meet and get to know each other. Time at the park is completely unstructured and parents are responsible for their own children. Collins Park is about a 5 minute drive from St. Dunstan's.

'My teenagers enjoyed the Shakespeare play as well as classes with other teens. I love taking turns teaching small groups of kids or helping out in their classes.' - Leilani Jensen
'I did not know the first thing about homeschooling but I found great support in the Co-op. I met friends who shared in my frustrations, and others who have homeschooled from the very beginning who were supportive and helpful.' - Kaylyn Backus
